OPINION: Imperial Valley Japanese- Americans, Our Forgotten Pioneers
Within days following the attack of Pearl Harbor by Japan on December 7, 1941, the FBI would apprehend over one hundred Japanese men in Imperial Valley in a series of large- scale sweeps that separated families from their providers. In the weeks following, a wave of fear would sweep our country causing federal, state, and local officials to take panicked political actions against local Japanese men, women, and children. Six months later, every single Japanese resident of Imperial Valley – including farmers, business owners, ministers, and some of our earliest settlers – would be ordered to evacuate with only the belongings they could manage to carry. All ultimately transported in buses to an Indian reservation in the Arizona desert. Driven by panic and fear, America would also provide no financial protection to those suddenly forced to abandon everything they had worked for in pursuit of the American Dream. This was not an evacuation of “bobbing heads and waving hands,” this was a mass deportation and incarceration of Imperial Valley Japanese families. A tragedy that should be remembered forever as it revealed the real repercussions of viral complicity and failed leadership, both morally and politically, in our nation.
